It's the end of the night, time to thank the band, stack up the chairs and bid farewell to our friends here at Raphael's Silver Cloud Lounge as Song by Song concludes its third season and heads off into the night. Rounding up discussions over authenticity and appropriation, as well as the value of the album as a whole, Sam Martin and Andrea bid you farewell, and prepare to rifle through their Small Change for next season.
